NEW YORK (AP) -- The NBC Sports Radio Network will launch in September.
The network will distribute hourly sports news updates, daily features and full-length shows to radio stations around the country through Dial Global, which provides audio to more than 8,500 stations.
The network will produce local and national coverage using commentators from NBC Sports, NBC Sports Regional Networks and NBC affiliates. It also will supply content to NBCSports.com and DialGlobalSports.com.
NBC created NBC News Radio with Dial Global earlier this year.
Dial Global's sports programming includes the NFL and college football and basketball games.
